I had interacted with Bailey for a whopping two minutes before I decided she was going on my preferred vendors list, why? Besides Cheri looking amazing, Bailey asked what style of photography I do so she would know if Cheri needed extra blush or not. Um, that’s brilliant! It had never crossed my mind to include the make up artist on my editing style, but it absolutely does affect how they should be dolling up the bride. Like I said, brilliant.
Tell me about your life away from work
My life away from work is full of music, friends and puppy snuggles! I have a 3 year old Australian Shepherd named Hercules and he is the goodest boy! Some of his favorite tricks are “jump” and “spin”. When I am not with the best dog the world has ever seen, I can typically be found at the piano. Playing the piano is one of my favorite hobbies. It is challenging but incredibly satisfying when you finally nail down a piece you’ve been practicing. It is also great for stress relief! Something else I look forward to every week is lunch with my family after Church on Sundays! It is the perfect way to reconnect with my family and recharge after a busy work week.
How did you become a makeup artist and hair stylist?
To become a hair stylist and makeup artist I went through a cosmetology program offered through my High School. After graduation, I took my exams, passed and was able to start working in a salon! It wasn’t until over a year later that I realized I was unhappy in a salon environment and decided to give hair and makeup for wedding and other events a try! After I worked my first wedding, I never looked back!

I offer formal and editorial hair and makeup services, specializing in airbrush and wedding day glam!
